Brian S. Wills, author of "George Henry Thomas: As True As Steel."
Gerry's Monologue - "This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...
...his men called him 'Old Slow Trot' and 'Old Pap.' His fellow Union generals, like William Tecumseh Sherman, said he was indeed slow, but 'As true as steel.' His superior, Ulysses S. Grant, never got along with him, but later admitted his admiration for the man. His family would say nothing to him or about him after he stayed loyal to the United States in 1861 instead of following his native state of Virginia into rebellion. Historians today call him one of the best generals the war produced. He is the subject of a new biography, "George Henry Thomas, As True As Steel" and we will talk to the author, Brian Steel Wills, today on Civil War talk Radio."
